I was checking the old Botany Society website and came across the page on Botanical Art. Apparently in 2007, the society was given permission to use Susan Sex’s artwork in publicising any events we organise. This is great thing as her stuff is amazing. The gallery below shows some of the painting she has done.

She also runs a 5-day Botanical Art course at the Burren College of Art. It’s highly recommended for Botany and Art enthusiasts alike. Work is ongoing to maybe invite her to give a talk/workshop on behalf of the Society, but these are just musings at present. Would be great if we did!

If you want to learn more about Botanical art in Ireland, Circa has a nice article on it or the National Botanic Gardens’ page.
